videowatchseWe may like to think of ourselves as geniuses when we get that great idea or insight at just the right moment, but really we are much more of a receiving dish, and we receive information from the things we tune into. All energy carries information, just like a phone signal does, and we have the ability to tune in to the frequency of things (both good and bad) and get information from them – to whatever degree we are able to translate, or decode, the signal. And such information is particularly useful when we are trying to make a spiritual journey, because so much of our path is unknown to us.

Jeane: So I don’t remember my dreams all that clearly, but I know there’s one dream in which  it’s like I had something that I was going to finish, a task or something, then I realized I needed to have the music to it before I could finish it. But it didn’t feel like it was such a very long song, or a very long time that it was going to take me to finish it, so I was okay. It was like I could afford to continue the music until the task completed.

I just had to kind of reassure myself about that. You know, in that dream it was more like it was kind of time limited, and I could almost see the time, and see the music, and then I could finish what I was doing. That was one dream. Okay.

John: Yeah, that’s interesting. What you just did there goes along with my last dream, except you’re doing it with hearing, as opposed to a quality of seeing, which means you’re doing it with sound as opposed to light.

And it makes sense that it should be this way because – it’s actually odd that I hadn’t thought of it this way, or hadn’t said this before, even though I know it to be true – that within qualities of sound is also information, just like within light there is information.

So there is vibratory sound from manifestation, within manifestation, sound being kind of a different octave of light, and that sound, the kind of sound that we’re inclined to think of as a smaller than small quality of light does have, in a smaller of small equation, or manner, of existence, meaning manifestation, has information in a smaller than small way.

This is very interesting because there really is this as above, so below. You can have the information as a seeing that opens up, that actually is considered kind of an attribute of accessing greater and greater light, in most instances the senses haven’t been accentuated to be able to notice such things in an ability to read the soul kind of way. And the degree in which things are reflective by mannerism and made, or created, out of sound, similarly speaking a human being generally does not understand that in the qualities of sound there is also information.

Now how does sound facilitate something like this? By putting what you revealed there, together with what I dreamt, I am able to see that sound is important in terms of being able to facilitate the letting go. Seeing can be too much, and can burn you out, until you get accustomed to the light. Sound can be so subtle that you are not able to pick it up because you aren’t letting go.

In other words, a person’s ears ring all the time and in that ringing there are subtler and subtler levels of things that are hearable, and that there is a lot of merit to a form of meditation in which you can just be taken by the music, or the inner sound, a taking that involves a letting go. And so awareness and consciousness to other things going on in manifestation, that is there for one to be able to denote and appreciate, is accessible through sound in manifestation – or the above and the below. The above opens up as an aspect or quality of light coming down, and the below opens up as an aspect of something that has been quickened by the light from above, that rises up.

The best way of describing this is it’s a form of letting go, and the way you can denote that for yourself is as you listen to the sound, which we were directed to do, the direction was to keep going until you heard something more. And then when you heard something more, and got it, reach for still something more, and something more, and something more.

And little did you know that when you got something, when you had locked in an ability to hear something, what you were really hearing when the smaller than small was more opened up in terms of the information therein, that you kind of pick up etherically, so to speak that way, that this is occurring and that the only denotable characteristic that you can put your finger on is you caught up with such a sound by a quality of letting go.

If your thoughts are loud, if your concerns are loud, if there’s pressure on you, you can block all of that out. All of that is just naturally blocked out. In fact, you deny its existence.

68617We have said that the universe is incomplete: it’s not finished. But part of what it is doing as it unfolds is seeking completeness. Things that are matter seek to return to energy; energy seeks to be released in matter, and humans awaken to their purpose and make their journey back home. So the process happens at the universal level, the human level, and even at the level of the breath: breathe in, breathe out, a full cycle. This is the process that we are trying to join – at a higher level than the physical, because that won’t last forever. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In my main dream I’m sleeping, and I’m in this bed, and I’m coughing and it’s like I can see that there’s like four balls that represent the pillow on my side, and there’s four balls that represent the pillow on your side, or circles, whatever they are.

There’s a certain way that I can cough that causes these balls or circles to kind of collapse into each other, and pull together. And I can do that on my side of the bed. I kind of get that to happen, and that’s what’s supposed to happen, but I just can’t quite seem to get it to happen with the fourth and on your side of the bed; the pillow that represents your side of the bed.

And I’m trying and I’m trying, because sometimes I have to start over on my side if I can’t get it to do it on your side. And I’m trying and I’m trying, but I just can’t seem to get that last step to pull where things kind of collapse in a way where they pull together. I can only seem to do it on half.

John: So what you’re doing is you’re trying to access a level, or a part, of yourself. In other words, instead of talking in it as levels, you have to talk in it as masculine and feminine. And instead of talking it as masculine/feminine, you can even talk about it as in-breath or out-breath.

And so from an in-breath standpoint, which is the feminine breath, it’s where something is accessed. It’s where something seeks to go home as an in-breath. It’s where something rises up to free itself from the chains of physical limitation – meaning a type of subjective clarity. That is working, and is reached fairly naturally.

However, the pulling down of the sight and the will, the recognition of what is, from a seeing level, meant to happen, designed to happen, as an inner into outer or out-breath will, that’s the part you’re still trying to bring clarity to. In other words, a part of you is functioning from a part of yourself in manifestation going back to the crown or, in other words, a type of rising up to touch light.

But that whole kind of connection, which is moving towards bliss, which is what is accentuated, when the in-breath turns to the out-breath, that whole aspect is fairly unconscious – meaning it’s subjective, meaning that it’s not something you put your finger on, and you can image it, but you don’t necessarily understand, even though it is a completeness in and of itself.

Credit tends to be given to the seeing of things, and you’re in a zone in which there is something going on that is right, okay, in the unfolding, in the awakening, but it’s a subjective awakening. It’s very much like the feminine nature can tell when something is true or not true, but may not be able to then turn around and explain it back, because it doesn’t have the faculties of a type of clarity that catches up with things quite that way. Yet it knows it and can feel it in its body, so to speak, a body that is correlated to the physical nature of all of life, to manifestation.

The masculine has a problem in that area or, I should say, rather than calling it the masculine, the out-breath has a problem in that area because the out-breath has struggled to come and become grounded, and in touch, with the creation. And, if it can do so, if it can come all the way down and through, it can bring in the divine light or the will. It can bring it straight through, and in a knowable and more visible way, that then is embraced by the feminine, that then renders the effect as an in-breath, as a carrying back.

So the full effect is kind of like a will, or an impulse, or a design coming down and manifesting itself as creation, and then the recognized acknowledgement of what has happened, when it isn’t lost because it’s gone so far away from the so-called home at the crown, is reconciled as the in-breath goes back.

So what you did is you imaged this as a kind of in-breath. Your dream kind of portrays the dynamic that the in-breath goes through as a function of itself, in that it pulls together a completeness from within. So the two pillows on each side make a completeness. When they come and work together it’s the full breath.

The pillows that are on your side, that represent the in-breath, the half of it now, find their completion when there is the catching up with the four balls that’s within them; which means then that the in-breath finds its completion as it goes back to home, goes back to the top. That’s the symbol. That’s the image.

And as far as this being a totally effective cycle of creation, and manifestation, from beginning to end and back to beginning, and it all being a type of pure energy or something, nothing going on just one image to the other, I mean flip sides of the same coin, above and below, in terms of that you don’t have the direction of the will, the above coming down, and you don’t have the access to that. You’re not in touch with that.

You’re in touch, however, with what is waking up, or a part that is then rising up and going back and handing back to the top as a means of facilitating what needs to be recognized, and seen, as a hearing and seeing from the top. But you don’t have the perception of the sight from the top coming down into manifestation that starts the whole process off, because it’s not outer to inner, it’s not the progression. The progression starts from inner into outer, and you don’t have the start. You don’t have the inner into outer. If you could pull that together then you would be in touch with seeing the pure light. Instead you bring it back. You bring something that awakens and inflects. You bring it back.

So what you have is only the one half. You have the rising up of what has been absorbed, the awakening of what has been absorbed. So what you’re trying to do is, if you can find the masculine side of yourself, with the feminine side activated, you will have made the full circle, the full breath.

rsdTo be in the flow of life means that we surrender our attempt to steer everything toward some imagined outcome, and instead be with what the universe is offering at the moment. In ancient Babylon, their daily calendar plotted celestial effects for morning and afternoon, showing what was a possible, or a recommended, way to proceed with one’s efforts. If the heavens didn’t support something, they wouldn’t try to do it – until the heavens shifted to a more supportive configuration. But we don’t need a celestial map to respond to the cues and clues we get from our systems, and the world around us, on how to best proceed – we just need to take the advice we are being given. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So then comes a dream, in the wee hours of the morning, that kind of puts that into action.

In the dream, a new birth has occurred in terms of the group. I am coming into a dining room late. I’m not sure if there is much food left for me. I am informed that I need to sit at a table with the group in support of what has happened, in other words, like there’s a new birth there. Something is coming alive there.

The group is situated in a center area. In other words, there are tables around the center area, but I can’t get into the center area, plus I’ve come in late, and so the place that I find to be available is along the perimeter.

Because I’m kind of told that I need to support this, I’m looking for a place like that to sit. Ordinarily I would’ve been perfectly comfortable going off a little bit on my own. It would’ve been a little alone and awkward, but that’s my nature. And that’s my self-denial.

Well, even though I came in late, I assumed that there was going to be trouble finding the food I needed from the service line, but it turns out that that concern isn’t founded. There’s just enough of a little of this, and a little of that, that I get more than what I need. I even start off with a small plate, as it doesn’t look like maybe there’s much left – and I fill it with ease. And then I use a regular normal size plate for everything else. And it even seems to surprise the servers, you know, that I have such a full plate. Even I have to glance at it because it’s full of a lot of different colors and nutritional vegetables.

The main dilemma, after after stepping from the food line, is finding juice to drink. I mean I guess there’s some water, but I’m looking for some juice. And it seemed like I saw some juice bottles that others have claimed, but I’m now looking from where the actual juice is at, and when I come across where they’re concentrated, the bottles are mostly empty and/or contain juices I had never heard of before.

So there’s a bottle there that’s got a little more in it than other bottles that are there and I pour this into a glass and it immediately fills the glass right up, which was kind of shocking. I just splashed it right in; and it’s an orange colored juice called Lean, L E A N. Someone who is standing there with me said, “It is probably very good.” Just because I have never seen it before doesn’t mean it isn’t delicious.

I don’t see anything else right there in the juice line, that’s concentrated, that grabs my attention, so I’m off a little bit to one side, right next to the juice area, and I’m taking a jar, I’m tipping it upside down so the liquid can flow to the top. It has to strain to the top through the roots, and through the coloration and whatnot, that is there. In other words that is sitting in kind of a depth within, I’m trying to get it to come to the surface.

And what I’m planning on doing is I’m going to give what looks like a multicolored object, the liquid that can be brought to the surface, pour that into a glass and give it a try. I just assume I’m still in the juice area. The person who said the Lean juice glass is probably very good, comes over and says, “You do not drink that. This is a plant. You’re in a plant area. You only drink in the juice area.”

I pause and realize that, sure enough, what I am staring at is kind of an arboretum area next to the juice area. It’s kind of exotic. Well, it’s as if a buzz goes up from the group, you know, as if somehow or another they hear of something bizarre like that that’s going on, that I’m trying to get the juice from a plant, as if that’s intriguing to them, it’s fascinating that I would even consider drinking a plant’s liquid as juice, a thought that never crossed anybody’s mind before. It sure is odd, it sure is different, that I would consider doing such a thing.

Nevertheless there is something about this action that draws their attention to me. It kind of draws me in, in that it offsets a bit of my stand alone nature, that I am also feeling, that enables me to support the perimeter of the table arrangement for the group, which is more in the center.

So the meaning is, in the dream, I am flowing with a feeling that is carrying me along. Everything I need is actually in ample abundance, even though I may question that by thinking this isn’t so. But all I have to do is look at my plate and I have filled it with a lot of wonderful vegetables, maybe overindulged. In other words, I’ve taken it to a point in time that goes through what I would have, and was acting as if, was going to be difficult.

I am feeling within a stirring that won’t go away. It is this inner energetic that compels me to scope about. I find juices I need, and naturally find fascinating, the life blood liquid of plants to be like a juice. This is the inner space I am in.

I support the group indirectly as my attention takes me into probing the aliveness around me and learning to better appreciate it all. To my surprise, this endears me, indirectly and directly, to the group. It is a surprise because I see myself as being on an outside edge trying to look in, knowing that in the center, where the group is more situated, something in need of support is being born. Or to put it another way, my actions are able to point to something emerging in an unusual, non-assuming way.
